I have Perl on my Ubuntu 10.04 OS and can compile programs through EMACS but it cannot be opened if I call for it online by HTML. Whenever I try to submit from a form on an HTML page that is to be run through a How do I solve this. I have Apache Server configured onto my computer as well.

The same issue seems to happen for JavaScript. I have JavaScript loaded on my computer but whenever I try to run an HTML file with a <script> </script> (even if I type script = "javascript"> </script> tag in it everything within that tag is ignored.

Is there something I must do to configure the browser to acknowledge these two scripting languages?

I think your browser is fine. If it works for other websites, it should work for this one. but maybe Apache is not displaying the right information? Did you check the HTML source? is the javascript code displayed properly? And did you check the error console in the browser? If something is not working with a javascript, it will appear there.

Okay, Thanks. Right now JavaScript seems to work, but I am not sure what it was that caused it to not work at first. Thank you anyways.
